My Dad K1WW was a great Ham with over 40 yrs. of service to the hobby. He was the guiding force that enabled my younger brother & I into the hobby. He will be missed by all who knew him. My brother will vanity his call soon.

David, Dan, Lisa & Shirley,
. Saw this on eHam this morning (Jan07). Had heard through the Trackers, and thought I'd drop a line here.
. Ray was one of those people who's impact stays with you for a lifetime. So many happy memories involve spending time at the Tracking Station or Field Day with Ray.
. Though Ray is gone, his positive influence will live on within so many of us who knew him. Tom Howey WB1FPA

I had the good fortune of working with Ray here at the VOA Delano site for 3 years. Ray was the moving force behind getting N6VOA on the air. Ray is remembered every time I turn on the rig. Ray and I did have 1 or 2 QSO's from California to North Carolina after he retired. He is deeply missed out here at N6VOA.
